I was very lucky because I had a really nice Christmas. I really enjoyed getting to spend time with my family and friends. There was lots of quality time spent together, lots of good food eaten, and lots of good films watched. I am grateful for all of these things.
As usual, my family and friends were also very kind to me, and gave me lots of lovely gifts that I can enjoy. Some of them could prove very useful to me in helping me stay warm, manage aches and pains, and maybe help me to be more independent too. These included a foot massager, a mini massager type thing that I could use on my legs or shoulders when they get stiff or achy, and a microwave oven that might help me become more independent in the kitchen. I’m very excited about that especially. I’d love to be able to cook more, but I think a lot of you know that by now.
Of course, there were also lots of nice warm socks and big thick jumpers to wear over pyjamas that would help me keep warm.
I’ll blog about all of these things as I use them and let you know how useful I find them all.
Now, at this time of year, I start to look at the 12 months ahead and what I can do to try and make myself a better person during that time. For the last couple of years, I haven’t actually bothered making any New Year’s resolutions because I haven’t been great at keeping them, but I think I might try again this time around. I’m still having a think about what these might be, but I guess I’d better hurry up and decide.
It’s also my birthday later on this week, and then the day after that I’m off to physio for a review on how my new splints are working out for me. It’s going to be another busy week here, but I like being busy.
I hope you all have a great New Year’s Eve tomorrow, and a very happy new year. I’ll let you know if I decide to make any resolutions or not.
